  1. I have been creating drawing Axehound breeds in the gallery and for fun I have been writing little head canons for each breed. I'm feelling a little iffy about my latest entree, so some advice and critques would be appreciated. So here is the picture: and here is the entree: The Conch Canin is an ancient breed, almost dating back to the Shadow days, and is most well known for its two most prominent qualities, it’s astounding intelligence and it’s strong, perhaps infamous fear of highstorms. Due these factors it has been the perfect archetypal candidate for folk tales and songs. These stories usually take the structure of the axehound seeing something of value, a piece of bread or the like, and will challenge another animal (usually a chull or a cremling) to a battle of wits. At first it will appears as though the Conch Canin has the upperhand, using some trick to its advantage, but then, just when it seems like the axehound has won, the other animal will start acting like there is a high storm coming, the Canin, losing it’s nerve, will then flee in search of shelter, leaving the other animal to reclaim its prize, as well as something from the axehound. There are numerous variations of the tale, some feature more exotic animals, others end with the axehound winning, and, interestingly, one where there actually was a highstorm, causing the featured chull to pupate and keeping both animals unable to enjoy the fruits of their wit. Note: Recently there have been reports of suspicious persons keeping Conch Canin in cages outside during highstorms. If you witness any such things report it to your local citylord, or captain of the watch immediately. I like the first part of the entree I liked, it gave feel to qualities of the breed and the lore surrounding it. The note at the end jutst feels a bit sloppy to me; I was trying to imply that an Off-worlder was experimenting with the breed in order to make intelligent animals like Ryshadium or Santhids. Do you think that I should, switch the entrees perspective to the aforementioned Off-worlder, rewrite in the same perspective to make it flow better or discard the idea and only keep the first paragraph?
  2. From the album Best in show

    The Chasmling is a diminutive yet aggressive axehound breed used for hunting small game in Herdaz. It's slender build and oversized mandibles have made it perfectly suited to infiltrating burrows and prying it’s quarry from crevices in the rock.These attributes, however are overshadowed by its most well known quality, its brash attitude. The Chasmling’s aggressive nature is immediately apparent to anyone whom it encounters as they have the tendency to bellow in a threatening manner at any entity they perceive to be challenging them. The size of the supposed incumbent does not matter to it, and can often be seen confronting anything from an impassive chull to a large boulder. This behavior has made the breed popular in Alethkar, especially in the war camps at the shattered plains, where it obtained its moniker. (critiques accepted and encouraged)

    The Conch Canin is an ancient breed, almost dating back to the Shadow days, and is most well known for its two most prominent qualities, it’s astounding intelligence and it’s strong, perhaps infamous fear of highstorms. Due these factors it has been deemed the perfect archetypal candidate for many songs and folk tales. These stories usually take the form of the axehound seeing something of value, a piece of bread or the like, and will challenge another animal (usually a chull or a cremling) to a battle of wits. At first it will appears as though the Conch Canin has the upperhand, using some trick to its advantage, but then, just when it seems like the axehound has won, the other animal will start to pretend there is a high storm coming, the Canin, losing it’s nerve, will then flee in search of shelter, leaving the other animal to reclaim its prize, as well as something from the axehound. There are numerous variations of the tale, some featuring more exotic animals, others ending with the axehound winning, and, interestingly, one where there actually was a highstorm, causing the chull to pupate and preventing both from enjoying their coveted prize. (I felt the blank background of the previous version was a little bland, so I decided to spice it up a bit with a parchment look.)

  6. Here are a set of axehound breeds I drew, let me know what you think. I have a few headcanons about these if you want to learn more about them just ask me which one.
  7. I've drawn a new axehound breed, but I'm at a loss of what to name it. Do you guys have any names, or possibly ideas for origins, trivia, or color scheme of it?

    Khabranth is known for many things, it's prestigious schools, it's wide renowed surgeons and, suprisingly, its axehounds. Every year Axehound breeders from all across Roshar gather to boast their skill and prowess in the breeds they create. Foremost among them was Dolloc Aveer, a Veden breeder who had won numerous awards for many unique creations. Pictured above is his Magnum opus the "Veden jewel" a breed that dispite it's name is bred from a Thaylen Catch and a Horneater Watcher. Dolloc description of the variety as "gemheart that shines with all ten colors of the rainbow" made it a popular color conversation topic among high ranking lighteyes. Unfortunatly only a few dozen heredity lines of this breed survived to the present era, due to health complication brought by the breeding proccess. Now-a-days, it's not uncommon to hear of a swindler trying to trick some lowborn lighteyes into buying a "lost line" of the breed only for it to turn out to be a cheap imitation.

    Can't believe how long it's been since I last got around to fleshing out my basket full of axehound sketches! I guess it's just one of the side effects of struggling with tar pit of depression, plans getting shelved for longer than intended. Anyway, this is another design for axehound where I really push for cuteness and pet-me vibe while still keeping the carapaces.

    1st of many Axehounds I have been wanting to sketch out, testing out how to merge my idea of cuddle-able soft dogs and spiky crustaceans. C-19 just means this thumbnail is number 19 on page 3 of alllll the axehound thumbnails I did a while back

    1 of the many preliminary sketch pages for the different looks of various axehound breeds I was thinking of doing a while ago before I got busy. T_T
  13. In keeping with the theme of the origami whitespine, I decided to take a shot at making an axehound. This one uses the same base as the whitespine, but only uses one square of paper. I will eventually make one in actual origami paper, but for now it'll be in printer paper. As always, if you want to see how it's made, or make your own, I can make a diagram for it. Hope you like it!
  14. Hey, when I reread WoK two months or so ago, I thought it would be fun to do a 3d-model of one of the creatures of Shallan's sketchbook. I ended up doing the Axehound, which was my favorite. When I did some research in the internet I found @DomainWalker 's Thread about exactly the same topic it was kinda funny There I found some design tips from @Inkthinker which were really useful. Thanks for that! I really like how the project turned out and would be interested to know what you folks think of it.
